Our new Flight Training app for the iPad contains the knowledge you need to fly. Experience is the difference.Get Ground School
Ground School is a brand-new flight training app that will help you acquire the knowledge you need to be a better and safer pilot. With qualified instruction from one of the most respected CFIs on the flight line, you’ll be confident, ready and prepared for your FAA written exam and your next checkride.
It's easy to keep track of progress and currency with an intuitive modern design and interface.
After you complete a test attempt you will see which questions you answered incorrectly and now have the ability to see the answer explanation along with a source reference.
Knowledge Recall is a form of spaced repetition
Through our Knowledge Recall feature the app will measure your knowledge decay over time and prompt you to take a short quiz as your currency lapses.
All Skills videos are filmed from the design eye height of the airplane.
Our custom made filming setup uses 4 cameras mounted at the design eye height of the airplane. In an age where so many training videos show cameras mounted on the tail and other strange exterior shots, we show pilots exactly where to look to learn the sight pictures they need to succeed. We call this Pilot Perspective™. Your instructor will be impressed.
The Pilot Proficiency dashboard is designed to distill all your interactions with the app into a single screen showing your strong and weak areas.
Your proficiency is measured across three metrics: Knowledge, Skill, and Risk. These are the same measurements the FAA uses during checkrides to measure pilot proficiency. Ground School aims to assess your checkride readiness across all three metrics.
Cross-reference lesson content and question answer explanations to included source FAA reference texts to deepen your knowledge.
This is the only ground school app I’ve seen that makes you feel like you are receiving one-on-one flight instruction… it has so many high-tech graphics and illustrations to go with it.

I wish this was around when I did my PPL. I don’t think anyone (student or pilot) could go wrong with utilizing this app to its fullest potential and with one of the best long-time active CFI’s in the right seat… it’s a no brainer.
Jason is one of the best CFIs around. His ability to explain complex information in an easy to understand way is top notch. It’s clear that this is the result of his many years of instruction. Thanks, Jason, for helping me to fly my best.

Each summer since 2011 we’ve been running adventure training trips to the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. This has grown into an Island Adventure in the Pacific Northwest coming into its 3rd year and our maiden voyage of a Canyon Adventure in the Northern Sonora Desert. These trips are designed as all inclusive trips that teach contingency planning and survival as part of the core curriculum. They are open to pilots from all over the world. It’s been incredibly rewarding pairing clients with some of the expert instructors we’ve met here over the last 20 years. If you’d like to join us on one of our Adventure Training Trips please visit this page for more details.
